Annual meadow grass makes sports fields unplayable
When light green patches appear on a sports field, the groundsman knows the score: annual meadow grass! If annual meadow grass is left to grow, it will become dominant in the field within three years. Newly laid out sports fields in particular are a target for annual meadow grass. Tackling it with chemicals is becoming more and more difficult, as some products are not easily available and the use of the number of permitted herbicides is becoming an increasingly greater issue. At Barenbrug we have researched Poa annua extensively in recent years, and we have succeeded in producing mixtures that are able to win the battle against annual meadow grass.
